Ancient Indian Folk Art:  Meet the Artist

Oct 27, 7-8:30 pm

Glavin Chapel

 Explore India’s ancient artistic and spiritual traditions as you meet a modern-day artist who is continuing a 2500-year-old folk art tradition.  Sunanda Sahay, an award-winning artist from Northern India, paints in the “Madhubani” tradition, a folk art practiced for over 2500 years in Northern India.  Learn more about India’s ancient spiritual traditions as well as its art as you listen to Sunanda and look at her work. 

 The Madhubani folk art tradition has its origins in the ordinary day of the Indian woman.  Women painted their mud walls to celebrate every festival, wedding, childbirth and to ward off evil influences.  This traditional art form has survived for centuries by becoming an integral part of local rituals and storytelling and helping to convey folklore and values from one generation to another.

 About the artist--Sunanda Sahay has been painting in Madhubani style from almost two decades now. She has participated in dozens of exhibitions, workshops, artist-in-residency, demos, juried shows and talks at various museums including MFA, PEM, Danforth museums, various schools, colleges and community places. Her website is www.colorOfIndia.com.

November

Drawing as Meditation

November 6, 5-7 pm

Glavin Chapel

By slowing down and paying close, directed attention to process rather than meditation, Drawing can be used to achieve the mindfulness of meditation.

 Denning Aaris will begin the session with a guided meditation after which Danielle Krcmar will lead you through a basic series of drawings made in response to sight, touch, and memory as a means of increasing your awareness of the present moment.

 This workshop is free to all members of the Babson Community, all art supplies will be provided and no previous art experience is required.
